Cara Delevingne Has A Tarantula On Her Eye For Her i-D Magazine Cover in London Zoo

22 November 2012 by

If you haven't got the picture by now we think Cara is pretty amazing here at Grazia- she ruled fashion week, she is BFFs with Rihanna and Azealia Banks and had a romance with Harry Styles. Now the Cara-effect has hit magazine covers, as she is one of i-D's eight cover stars for their Wise Up issue.

Each cover of i-D mag always features their iconic wink, with stars closing their right eye. Karl Lagerfeld covered his with an eye patch, Charlotte Free covered her eye with a slice of pizza and Kate Moss covered her eye with a blunt fringe. But Cara is fashion's favourite class clown who likes to dress up as a hot dog and wear animal onesies so she covered her eye with a tarantula. You've got some serious guts to let that sit on your pretty, pretty face Cara.

The cover is very I'm a Model Get Me Out Of Here, as Cara has a spider on her face with leopard print nail art. The editorial was shot in London Zoo where Cara also made friends with a lemur, feeding it slices of apples while wearing Sister by Sibling with neon eye-liner and bright pink hoop earrings.

Cara has also tweeted pictures from her i-D shoot of her frolicking around London Zoo - having a staring competition with an owl, posing with a Komodo dragon and holding up a big scary snake. It's not the first time Cara has posed with animals, as for Nick Knight's first ever instagram photoshoot for Show Studio Cara posed with ducklings, kittens and bunny rabbits.

The Wise Up i-D cover stars include Lara Stone, Arizona Muse, Grace Coddington and Lena Dunham. We already showed you Lena's oh so pretty i-D cover of her in a white blouse with red lip print and we LOVE Grace's cover and her cobalt blue Céline coat. 

It's the Wise Up issue so everyone featured offers up some of their wisdom, and Cara said: "The best advice I've ever been given is try everything once so you can form your own opinion. My rules for life are have fun and enjoy yourself, and keep calm and breathe. Rules are made to be broken." Yep, that's wise.

Look through the gallery above of Cara's kooky shoots with animals from puppies to ducks to tarantulas...
